From elementary school K-Kids to middle school and Kennett High Key Club students, to local businesses and service organizations, and all the way on up to motorcycling American Legion Santas and a local knitting centenarian, the entire community gives back to Angels and Elves to ensure that local children of families in need have gifts under the tree come Christmas morning.
As of Friday, sponsors were still needed for Angels and Elves, note co-directors Dick Ficke and Marie Lee. “The request deadline was Dec. 2. As of this morning, we have 510 applications and 427 sponsors, so we still have 83 to go,” Ficke told The Sun Thursday afternoon.
Hours for Elf Headquarters (in the former Wild Things store off Route 16 in North Conway) are daily 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., through Dec. 16. For more information, call 356-8710.

While New England went through a warm-up earlier this week, Mount Washington Valley’s ski resorts and ski touring centers were able to pound out the snow almost around the clock, putting them in a good position for early-season skiing. Wildcat and Bretton Woods are reporting 9 to 10 inches of natural snowfall to date this season, too. Even Great Glen Trails got in on the action, making enough snow to open this coming weekend, Dec. 7.
More than half of the valley's ski resorts will open this weekend, with the rest planning on a mid-December opening.
